The blue smoke normally presents itself because the cylinders are cold and no matter how many times you cycle the GP the metal of the cylinders will remain pretty cold until the engine is running. Mine will do this, also, anytime it is below 45-50 at night for the first start of the day. It is normally just incomplete combustion for several minutes then once things warm up it goes away. Plugging in the truck for a couple hours before you want to leave will get rid of most of it but starting the motor and letting it idle for 5-10 minutes does the same as long as she's not hard to start.
The flip side of this is that with your other issue (assuming they are related) points to a weak HPOP. In the performance settings the chip will close off the IPR more then the PCM would do on it's own and thus artificially (as in "not how Ford designed it") raise the running pressure of the HPOP and it's produced oil pressure and your injectors run better.
The fuel filter _may_ be pointing at a blown injector O-Ring but that issue typically blows in the other direction, towards the head and not mixing the two fluids. Not saying that is what is happening, just what it normally does. The black fuel filter would normally lead me to a water saturated filter. The filter does its' best to block the water that might be in the fuel but it's last line of defense is to just absorb it. Is the fuel sitting in the bowl clear? or murky/dark?
